Informations
Population: 66.580
Description: Komotini is one of the most famous and beautiful cities of northern Greece. Archaeological findings verify that the city earlier settlement dates from the 2nd century AD, but the city did not flourish until the 4th century, because of the Egnatia Road. It was established to be an important trade passage from the east city of Durres to Istanbul, and to the north, beyond the mountains of Rodopi, to Plovdiv. During the revolution of the Greeks against the Ottoman Empire, members of the “Filiki Eteria” were active in the region, helping the revolutionaries. Komotini has experienced exceptional growth from the tobacco production and trade. The modern city blends eastern and western cultures living together as Christians and Muslims, refugees from Pontos and Minor Asia, giving Komotini a distinctive color and unique scent definitely worth to experience!
